A first

Thursday night at six
Hill's so quiet, I could hear
The bell's at St. Joe's

Ref: St Joes (wiki)

I missed you, Capitol Hill

Back from the homeland
Dial-up modems, Explorer :(
No cell phone signal.

Two-plus weeks later
How 'bout let it go, ok?
Nader. Not the cat.

Make it stop

Heard this song today
Considered drowning myself
In my bowl of pho

Overheard on Boylston

"How is it going?"
"It's okay. My mom has breast
cancer." "I'm sorry."

Graphic designers, not in demand

High unemployment?
I guess baking bagels, schmears
Still in high demand

Is it June yet?

The sun is out now.
But whenever I step out
it returns to rain.

Killing time waiting for the bus

Water into drain
Kinda scared of what's below
But the sound soothes me

Don't go into the light

Sun set before 5.
Runners, wear your safety lights.
But don't blind me, please.

Ready to pounce

Victrola, batts low
I'm one of those lame people
Hunting for outlets

A passive aggressive note to my apartment manager

Radiator heat
I'd love your warmth, clankiness
If you would just work

Red, white, and blue

Christmas came early!
Festive lights for Obama
Or for Sarkozy?

What is there to say?
For the past 48 hours
I have been speechless

Too much at once

Halloween costumes,
rain, and election fever.
Combined? Freak me out.
